Thursday, February 14, 2013
K-State Proud, an organization that encourages students to help their fellow students, was in Hoffman Lounge Wednesday collecting donations and giving donors t-shirts.
“Creating a culture of philanthropy. That is what K-State Proud represents,” said Chris Kellenbarger, this year’s vice president for Student Campaigns for Student Foundation.
The group’s goal is $135,000. “Last year we raised more than $116,000 and enabled 70 students to stay in school, the business major said.
K-State Proud will be hosting an information table in the K-State Student Union Feb. 18 – 22.
Students are encouraged to wear their K-State Proud to the K-State Proud game on Feb. 25.
If you or someone you know is currently struggling to financially stay at the university, K-State Proud recommends submitting a nomination for a Student Opportunity Award. The awards committee meets weekly to process applications, which can be submitted at www.k-stateproud.org.
“We want students to be involved in lifelong philanthropy,” Kellenbarger said.
